2012-13 General Catalog
Emerging Infectious Disease Epidemiology
Web site: http://www.public-health.uiowa.edu/academics/certificate_eide.html
Emerging infectious diseases increasingly are recognized as global and regional issues. Some infectious diseases are controlled effectively with the help of modern technology. But new diseases—such as SARS, West Nile, and avian influenza virus infections—appear frequently, and older ones, including malaria, tuberculosis, and bacterial pneumonia, are now appearing in forms that are resistant to drug treatments. All of them have the potential to seriously affect human and animal health as well as economies locally and worldwide. They pose novel and unceasing challenges for professionals in health care, government, and private agencies.
The College of Public Health offers the Certificate in Emerging Infectious Disease Epidemiology. It has a required on-campus component (summer), but the remaining work may be done either on campus or by distance education.Back To Top
